Another day, another Kardashian babymama drama.
This time, oldest daughter Kourtney, 33, is under fire, as a model claims that he actually fathered Kourtney’s son Mason, 3.
Model Michael Girgenti, 26, claims he had a brief affair with Kardashian when she was on the rocks with boyfriend Scott Disick back in 2008. Kardashian and Girgenti worked on a photo shoot for 944 together.
According to Girgenti, the pair hung out after the 944 shoot and slept together exactly nine months before Mason was born.
The model claims he saw photos of the child and got suspicious. “After [Mason] was born, and I saw photos of him, I began to wonder. I would definitely want to acknowledge Mason if he’s my kid – he deserves to know his real father,” he said to In Touch.
Girgenti has tried to contact Kardashain to no avail, and says he went public with the story to force Kourtney to arrange a DNA test. “If Mason’s my child, I want to be there for him.” said Girgenti. And there’s the small matter of Kourtney’s millions. Perhaps Girgenti anticipates a life of K-Fed-esq spousal support and unlimited McDonalds?
A rep for Kardashian calls the allegations a “preposterous and an outrageous lie.” The rep also claims Kardashian never contacted or heard from Girgenti again after the 944 shoot. Mason’s legal father, Scott Disick, has yet to speak out on the paternity allegations. Disick and Kardashian are also parents to a daughter, Penelope, 9 months.
This is not the first time paternity claims have surrounded the Kardashians. For years, matriarch Kris Jenner, 57, has fought off rumors that late attorney Robert Kardashian was not the true father of Khloe, 28. The media jumped on the story with new zeal after Kris admitted to having an affair during her marriage to Robert.
Both Khloe and Kris have denied the story vehemently. No word on whether momager Kris has sent a cease and desist to Girgenti.
